Perhaps if they didn't live their lives so publicly, their marriage would have lasted.......but I doubt it. You could see how incredibly difficult it was for her to deal with the in-laws, who are very over-bearing and want everything their way. Jason did not stick up for his wife,but sided with his Mom. He needs to grow a pair!

Sorry Bethenny, if you couldn't make it work with him you will never make it work with anyone. He was patient and kind, a good dad and good to you. You were always rude to him and his parents so good luck finding anyone who will put up with your crap. I use to like you now I am not so sure.

I never saw what show she was in so I am guessing she was one of those housewives who got pregnant when her "career" was winding down. I see her face all over the place and the spelling of her name drives me crazy. I was going to say I don't care, but here I am ...

I have watched Bethany doping the television shows circuit and she is very aggressive, and over talks people.. I can say that she is an ignornant person..

I am not surprised that her husband got tired of her!

Jason .... you should not walk away from Bethanny ..... you should RUN, and you should have done it long ago. You met, got her pregnant, then did the right thing and married her. You are far too nice for this overbearing controlling woman (and I'm trying to be nice here). You deserve SO much better. This was a long time coming. Anyone could see it wasn't "if" but "when" you would separate. The way she made you choose and put restrictions on your wonderful parents who tried so hard to love her. It must be like trying to love an aligator who will eat you alive. So much happiness lies ahead for you in the future, and I wish you the best of luck. This is not the end .... it's the start of a bright new future for you.

This saddens me, too. I have always rooted for Bethany, and I was hoping she had finally found lasting happiness. If she says this is he best decision for her family, I will defer to her judgment. I am glad they've agreed to amicably coparent their daughter. Nonetheless, she made a crap ton of money during he marriage...I hope she had a prenup.

She treated her father like do-do. Maybe now, she can see a brokem marriage from another point of view!
